The end-of-decade charts are presumably skewed towards more recent songs because of the growth in Spotify’s user-base. The service had just 7 million users in 2009, but now boasts 248 million monthly active users, of which 113 million are paid, subscribers.

Later this week, Spotify will unveil the latest incarnation of its “Spotify Wrapped” feature, allowing users to generate a personalized breakdown of the music they listened to in 2019.

Other streaming services, including Apple Music and Amazon Music, are expected to reveal their own data later this month.
